Just wondering Tned, what is the sites definition of personal attack? And where are the COC's, I must be blind because I can't locate them? I'm not questioning the authority but wondering if you and the other decision makers have drawn that line yet.

Hasn't Dream been personally attacked for like 2 months straight? I'm not saying his banning wasn't justified, I don't know what happened. Sometimes I wonder where this line in the sand is.

I'm sure some posts just slip through the cracks, maybe that's all there is to it.

Just thinking aloud.

Right. It's in the CoC under 'what's ok for some is not ok for others'.

Maybe it should be addressed.... but what would I know?

Seems to me someone has forgotten what life was like before he was a mod - or even during his first few months as one - Lord Tampon ;)

The old BM USED to let us do the same thing - as long as it was in jest (which with them it usually is) - things were fine until a bunch of whiney ass babies started crying to steve and the mods everytime someone said they were an idiot or dumbass - boohoo - so-n-so hurt my little feellers and called me dumb :hurt:

Ya gotta admit being a little looser has its advantages - you know u miss being nasty :eyebrows:

Actually, I think part of what makes me a decent mod (whether you want to argue that point or not is up to you) is the fact that I'm very GOOD at telling the difference between when someone is joking around with a friend and when someone is not. i.e. I wouldn't report you for calling me 'Lord Tampon' or any host of other things because I know you and I know that you're USUALLY playing when you call me names. ;)

However, I would have to disagree with you on the way 'old mania' was... personal attacks that were actually meant as personal attacks were never allowed to the best of my knowledge... but again, what would I know... you WERE there before me. However, since you've alluded to getting in trouble in the past, I take it safe to assume that there were always rules and they were always enforced.

Now I don't know how close tubby and Dream are... and I don't know the nature of their friendship. So I didn't report that post, because it's plausible that it is indeed a joke and that if Dream were here, he'd laugh.

However, I think it's true that Dream takes a lot of punishment here, but because he's got a thick skin, he takes most of it in stride.

We ALSO don't know exactly what happened, because I'm sure most of it was deleted. So we can't assume it was some casual comment by Dream. Chances are he went overboard at some point and exploded at someone. I'm not defending him. If he's banned for a week, I'm sure he did something to earn it.

That doesn't mean that it's ok to have double standards though. If he's been attacked repeatedly by the same members, at some point there should be consequences for them too.

There's a fair chance though that other warnings were also handed out... We simply don't know.

Most everyone involved in pissing contests are aware of their compilcity, almost always..
Most will learn from the PM's and warnings some will not.

We go out of our way to warn, warn and then warn again before the ax falls..

Anyone Banned anytime IMHO would have been way overdue on other forums.

it was probably more the fact that three of them piled on boss for about four pages worth of juvenile mockery-- i was embarrassed reading it. . . for the record though, slick is right-- the exact same thing gets done to dream (and NUB and CR) all the time, and i've never seen anyone get banned for it. . . since dream can be annoying, maybe the thought process is that he brings it on himself. . .

We really try to keep the threads going and not over moderating.

There are alliances made and built that things can be said within that we try hard not to mess with. Once they step out of bounds we have little choice but to edit, warn, delete posts or close threads.

Perhaps that is seen as double standards. We try hard not to let that happen..

Personal direct attack simply are not allowed if you see one report it..

We simply can not be everywhere, all the time..

We often do not see it until after the fact..

I know you don't simply allow it just because it's Dream... although I know it's tempting.

Double standards is actually a bit harsh... for my meaning.

I think that Dream takes a lot of punishment because we all know he can deal with it... he's not easily offended and his feelings don't get hurt... and to be honest, he enjoys a good argument.

But MAYBE a little too much attacks on him go on.

I'm sure there is a little more too it than merely "just a personal attack".

I'm sure there was a warning that went unheeded, either through PM or in the thread, and i'm sure posts were deleted, and i'm sure that still didn't fix the situation and then a banning happened.

Precious few people have been banned here and things are a lot more lenient than at that other site. I have seen nothing but complete fairness from the moderators.

I have personally made attacks, and been attacked, a post was made by a mod saying to knock it off, apologies were made and life continued on....

I hope Dream takes it in stride and hope to see him back next week.

Dream dishes it out first is my observation. If he received a ban, I don't think it should be debated by discussing all board members vs Dream. It may indicate though, Dream pushes a lot of buttons of a lot of board members. It's time he's not overlooked, I for one, appreciate it by the mods, very much so.

OB, your point is well taken. I know the freaks that joined do insult each other, and it's all in good fun.

As a matter of fact, it's because of them, I post and read more threads here. They bought a sense of humor, and a different perspective that this board has greatly benefited from IMO.

We all know when the name calling isn't in 'good fun', and I was pointing that out.

I seriously doubt that Dream, NUB or CR, who take the brunt of most of it, even bother to report it. Not trying to make a big deal about it, because it doesn't happen often.

I just hated to see Dream get banned for something that has probably happened to him a few times.

There's a 7 Dos Equis difference between my first post in this thread until now. If I'm not making sense, I'm blaming it on the alcohol.

I totally agree with your observations. He barges into threads that he doesn't agree with and then attacks everyone for differing opinions. When you walk around with your head in the clouds, no responsiblities, no cares.. then pretend to know everything.... You end up with a bad attitude toward those that just might know more.

All I can say is that if I were Dream, I would have gone postal a long time ago... He takes more than his fair share of abuse and I have a hard time believing he came up with any attack more distasteful than those launched against him on a daily basis...

Maybe he does have it coming sometimes, I'm not here to be a Dream apologist... But there seems to be a number of people claiming that there shit doesn't stink, when in fact, it does.

Dream can be alright when he wants to be, but I think as a white kid living in North Dakota with all of his "street cred" and other bogus shit talking he brings a lot of what he gets on himself. He does a lot of other behind the scenes, extra-cirricular stuff that not everyone know about that also puts people on edge when it comes to him.

Yeah, I know what you mean, and he probably puts himself at odds with people more than the average poster... And maybe there's extra-cirricular stuff that I don't see... But from the outside looking in, it just seems as though him being public enemy #1 made it easier to ban him than someone else who may be guilty of the same offenses.

And Tned-- One suggestion, I think it might help clear up some of the grey ares in the CoC if you disclosed the details behind bannings... Plus it might help act as a deterrent as well.

Personally, I feel bad for him but not because people pick on him. IMO, 90% of the picking on him is his own doing, but I still feel bad for him because he loves his tie-die shirts so much and because he things "street cred" is relevant to anything.

And Tned-- One suggestion, I think it might help clear up some of the grey ares in the CoC if you disclosed the details behind bannings... Plus it might help act as a deterrent as well.

There is a suspensions/ban log that lists the primary reason why a person was suspended or banned. Beyond that, I won't go into details on suspension other than to say that there are probably few people that posted in this thread, that haven't had some kind of warning, PM or at least a post edited. The point is, that except for the most grievous acts (which Dream was not guilty of), we have not banned or suspended a single person for doing 'one' thing.

So, I won't go into the details that led to Dream's suspension, by it if you truly want to understand from the stand point of 'deterrent', then that is simple.

There is a set of rules -- follow them. There is a group of moderators -- respect their authority, and comply with their requests when you have broken the rules.

If you do those two things, then you, and everyone else, will be just fine. If a moderator steps into a thread and tells the participants to get back on topic, or stop the personal attacks, DO IT. Don't ignore and force the mods to close the thread, so they have the time to clean it up without trying to run ahead of the people flaming each other.

So, that gives you a little idea on the deterrent side. It is pretty easy. Follow the rules -- Comply with the mods when they have to step in because people aren't following the rules.

Hasn't Dream been personally attacked for like 2 months straight? I'm not saying his banning wasn't justified, I don't know what happened. Sometimes I wonder where this line in the sand is.

I'm sure some posts just slip through the cracks, maybe that's all there is to it.

Just thinking aloud.

Im not trying to add fuel to the fire but dream has a history beyond this board IMO - and once that board got messed up they wouldnt allow anyone to say anything to him regardless of the obvious bait he was throwing

and i may be wrong but there is also an issue about him being a poster that got perma banned and signed up under a different name and totally mellowed his attitude

Some people have said I do. I don't really know how I sound. I don't really like how I sound. I sound like my father a lot (many tell me that). I guess sometimes I sound like Ben Stein. I wear glasses and have a rather nasal voice (like him) because my airways are all messed up and all. So yea, kind of like him.

I agree with the people talking about him being attacked. It reminds me of that JayCutty dolla guy or whatever. People didn't like him from the old board and they constintantly picked on him. I dont know what he did to get banned but I know that he got egged on and stuff
Same with Dream. Everywhere he posts I see about 5 people go right towards him and make a comment towards him. I dont know how Dream can handle it. If I got treated and picked on as much as him I would probably put a gun to my head and end my life because I dont tolerate that stuff.

So I think we should do something about constantly picking on posters and stuff. oh well. It happens and the 7 days will be here shortly. It will give him more time to get an updated Mock ready for us all. :elefant:

What I seen is that you had 2 people who pride themselves on being able to recognize talent.. When that was put to question it went down hill from there...

I have been treated nothing but fair here by the mods, I have no reason to believe Dream or anyone else would be treated unfairly..

That being said, I have never had a problem with Dream, I can't think of one time he has ever said anything downgrading to me..

I hope he comes back to the board after his ban, IMO he has a lot to offer this community,, If it wasn't for him and Boss our draft forum wouldn't be half what it is...

Well I wasn't on the other board, and didn't know Dream from anywhere but here, and he made his own impression with Me! He likes to come in and bait people into attacking him, and that gets him all fired up.

He argues his side with attitude and disrespect and for no real reason then to rile people up. He isn't out to make a point, or try to pursade, just to disagree. Then he whines about it when he gets the 1-2 punch!

It has NOTHING to do with him being young! Anyone of any age that played the game like Dream does, would get the same response! Joking is one thing but when you attack and don't expect the other side to fire back, you are not being smart! Smart has nothing to do with age!!

My guess is that Dream likes it. I think he comes off as cocky, arrogant and somewhat condascending...but it's only an internet message board. Hardly sumthin to get upset over. When he says something I think is stupid, I tell him...or anyone else...ask Boss. We used to NEVER agree on ANYTHING. It was almost a given that if he said peanut butter, I'd say jelly. Again, some people thrive on the "drama" and enjoy the banter. To me, he sees to be that guy. Nothing wrong w/ it as long as a line isn't crossed.

As far as Mr. Money Bags...dude was just an ass. He often resorted to namecalling and wanted to cyberfight. I truly believe his enjoyment in life is to go on random messageboards just to start trouble and see who he could bait. We don't need that here.

Maybe more people need to think that way...like the people who reported him. I don't know...it seems to me that Dream likes a good argument and he likes stirring the pot, so maybe people could just take any rude comments he says with a grain of salt. I understand that there is a line that can be crossed and that some things should be worth a banning but I think that there is more going on than any of us knows. Clearly this isn't a one-sided attack by Dream.

There's a difference between giving someone a little shit because they say dumb things and reporting someone for saying dumb things.

I'm not so sure there Dogfish. A lot of posters with a wide variety of beliefs get along very well here. I'm a fan of DallasChief and Buff Bronco Fan, among others, with whom I agree on virtually nothing outside of football. I suspect you and I would have a few differences of opinion (except on Beer), but I consider you one of the best poster's here, and always enjoy your stuff.

I think what you are referencing has more to do with sarcasm and wise-Assery than differing opinions. Sarcasm, if not handled very carefully and indirectly, can come across as an insulting and poor imitation of wittiness, and is as grating as nails on a chalkboard.

So true, so true! Dog and I hardly agree on anything political, but I adore him and respect him. I have become very fond of Buff - he's a very funny poster, although I don't agree often in P&R. King87 is one of my favorites here - he's fiesty and a thinker, but we don't agree on a few things. AlWilson - I rarely agree politically, but I still like him as a poster very much so---he's got a very big heart. I don't expect everyone to agree with my take---that would make for a very boring board.

It would be soooooo easy to simplify this to P&R, but it's so much more than that, and I think you defined it very well, thank you. It's very important to keep one's sense of humor with other posters where possible. There are exceptions, but I guess that's the point....they should remain 'exceptions' and not the 'norm'.

A sign of being banned is not a reflection on the entire board, but on an individual. What would an employer say if you tried to blame your own negative traits on everyone else? "Take responsibility for what you say/do and your final check's in the mail." :D

One other point I'd like to make, posters really should not believe they 'know and see everything' that occurs on this board. There's so much 'behind the scenes' in pm's and with moderator's communication, none of us are privy to. If your own personal experience with a poster is good - be grateful, but don't assume no one else has any legitimate concerns, including the moderators. The mods here are very patient overall.

I'm going to echo what FC said, or I guess just bump it.

Dream may hold views different than many, and might not be afraid to express them, but isn't that what makes a message board ticK? Difrerent people expressing different opinions? Things would be pretty boring if we all felt and said exactly the same things.

This thread was about "why" Dream was banned, which as I said, I won't address beyond what is in the ban/suspend log. However, I would ask that this cease to be a "kick Dream while he is down' thread, as that simply is not very sporting, especially considering he doesn't have the opportunity to kick back at the moment.

anyway, just some random thoughts I thought I would share.

I'll agree there Tned. I'm pretty opinionated myself, and not real bashful about it. I'll argue almost anytime with anyone over anything, but I try not to get personal. I'll vigorously attack a position or a theory, but not the person who forwards it. When I can't do that any longer, I'll ignore the poster in the future. Just being a little careful with words can make a huge difference. There's a big difference between these two statements;

"If you think we need Roc Alexander back in uniform you are an idiot";

and

"It would be idiotic and silly to bring Roc Alexander back in a Denver uniform"

I do believe that in order for a community of any sort to thrive good manners are critical. The CofC is a good one, and its a great board, and we should want to keep it that way. A little more care would help IMO
